Finish work and a weekend project
I'm more a stitcher than a finisher most days, but there is the occasional moment that I enjoy doing some fine hand work, stretching and lacing my own needlework or doing the framing on one of my pieces. It's fairly labor intensive given the time I don't have to spend on it, but to me it seems just a part of the overall stitching process and I enjoy the feeling of accomplishment. So here's the latest little accomplishment.
This cute little design (Three Friends) was from an exclusive kit bought at a Bent Creek class in 2001 and has been laying around for ages waiting to become something special. In looking at it again this week I realized it was too large for a fob but wondered if it might fit into this clock. The clock that was bought on a trip to Tennessee in 2001 at Village Mountain Stitch and has been waiting to tell me what time it is. Well, sure enough it was a perfect fit and a snap to put together and a pleasure to use. This could be addictive if I had more clocks.
This is the Treasure Chest that serves as a coffee table in my livingroom. Nice hu? Problem is it always has magazines on it (unless Bryce is over and demanding that I move things off it so he can play with his toys on it) so what's inside is out of sight and out of mind. Should we open it up and see what it holds.....
Here it is.......scads of UFOs, WIPs, and things that have been long ago kitted and are waiting to be started. Well this is by no means ALL of my UFO/WIP collection, simply a stash that is in one place that I don't paw thru very often. Peering into this last night I realized there were things I've completely forgotten about even having. I need desperately to empty it on the floor and index it so I can add to my list of things to focus on in 2007. I'm sure there are some that will move up the list, while others will no doubt be launched. Sounds like a good weekend project since it's going to continue to be cold in the midwest.
